American Custom Yachts was started by Dominick LaCombe in 1991 and is based out of Stuart, FL. By the time he founded ACY, Dominick was already well-established in the marine industry as he had supervised the construction of the world’s fastest diesel powered sportfisherman that reached speeds of 48 knots.
American Custom Yachts maintains a 63-acre marine facility that accommodates the manufacturing of their world-famous custom sportfisherman along with providing an array of marine services such as yacht repair, repowering and refitting, full painting services, and storage for over 300 boats with around the clock security.
In 1993, ACY launched its first custom sportfisherman that featured an exclusive water slicing hull design known as the Freedom 58. Since then, ACY has been focused on research and development as they strive to set the standard for strength, speed, and comfort. Every vessel is gracefully handcrafted to meet each owner’s specific needs.
In 2014, American Custom Yachts acquired the Venture name and company assets to bring them under one roof. ACY has re-emerged the Venture brand as a proven and highly sought after fishing machine by introducing a variety of innovative improvements and upgrades giving owners custom options to perfectly fit their needs. Today, the Venture line has been tactfully redesigned for comfort, performance, convenience, and improved fishability.
American Custom Yachts is also proud to welcome Westport as a new affiliate and member of the Edison Chouest Offshore family of companies. Westport has been around for over 50 years and is one of North America's largest luxury Yacht Builders with four locations, three in Washington State and one in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
American Custom Yachts takes pride in their reputation of building long lasting relationships with customers and business associates. For whatever a boat owner’s needs may be, ACY will make them feel right at home. At American Custom Yachts, the proven results speak for themselves.
